Political Parenting

A house of the Middle East,
boarders and borderline personalities.
Right here, right now.
Meshing, melding,
separating, single filing.
No peace, nagging negotiation,
diplomatic dysfunction.
Sometimes instead of coos
a coup de take down
of parents into disunity.
Rock throwing is
“accidental” they say.
For us Arab springs up
in any season.
We enter Camp David
to advise each other.
We are always adopting
new policies.
“We, the two people.”

Families of adoption, for adoption, in adoption of children of abuse and neglect, this poem’s for you.
